I think to send this squad to NZ to represent SA is an insult to the NZ Cricket Board and the NZ Public.
They are entitled to expect a far stronger outfit than this lot.
New Zealand are one of the most underrated teams in Test Cricket.

15/4 Proteas will struggle to get to 150 now thus giving India lots of time to set up the rest of the match

At school I played for the worst team at the school, possibly in the whole of Cape Town yet we were never dismissed for 55

The shortest test match ever. Only lasted 624 balls  Kudos to Markram for showing how to do it. Best 100 that he will ever score

only 1 one-handed catch so far - this fella will be hoping for some serious Noah time

Last week there was some upset result in cricket with Shamar Joseph being the star against Australia for West Indies against Australia.

But there is another bowler currently at the U19 World Cup in South Africa.

Kwena Maphaka has taken 18 wickets so far with couple of 5 wicket hauls. Bowls left arm with pace and his yorkers are deadly. Interestingly he is signed by Paarl Royals in the SA20. Never turn 18 yet and definitely a Proteas star in the making.

MI Capetown absolutely pathetic. Peterson has his mouth full of chewing gum so impossible to coach the team when they are in a pickle, Pollard, Livingstone and Curran just go there for the big bucks and a holiday as their performance this season was scandalous. They kept  all the non performers in the team and only gave 2 reserves a go. Deserved to finish bottom.

The Proteas lost the test when they won the toss. 

You win the toss you bat you don’t give the home team advantage straight away 

India  looking to draw level in the series v England who will need over 400 to win. Should be  a good watch

The SA20 has been a huge success arguably the best in the world as it runs for just over a month unlike Big Bash and IPL that go on and on. The one handed catch for the fans  just makes the matches so much more exciting to watch. All the commentators are superb bar one and that is Motor Mouth  Haysman. The public have supported the comp by attending in their thousands and all appeared to be having a good time.
